[Springsteen Video] – Darlington County

Darlington County has been published for the first time on Born In The U.S.A.




Driving in to Darlington County
Me and Wayne on the Fourth of July
Driving in to Darlington County
Looking for some work on the county line
We drove down from New York City
Where the girls are pretty but they just want to know your name
Driving in to Darlington City
Got a union connection with an uncle of Wayne’s
We drove eight hundred miles without seeing a cop
We got rock and roll music blasting off the T-top singing

Sha la la la la la la la la, Sha la la la la la la

Hey little girl standing on the corner
Today’s your lucky day for sure all right
Me and my buddy we’re from New York City
We got two hundred dollars we want to rock all night
Girl you’re looking at two big spenders
Why the world don’t know what me and Wayne might do
Our pa’s each own one of the World Trade Centers
For a kiss and a smile I’ll give mine all to you
Come on baby take a seat on my fender
It’s a long night and tell me what else were you gonna do
Just me and you we could Continue reading

Between Worldly Things And Spiritual Health 02.11.1984


I think that – including this bootleg – I have less than ten bootleg of the Born In The U.S.A. Tour.

Between the end of October 1984 and the begging of November Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band stopped in Los Angels for seven concerts.

Apparently no artwork available.

St. Paul 29.06.1984 – Uber Series 39

Bruce Springsteen St. Paul 29.06.1984

Prima  data del tour di Born In The Usa; Bruce Springsteen e la E-Street Band aprirono infatti a St. Paul il 29 giugno 1984 il tour che si sarebbe concluso a Los Angeles il 2 ottobre 1985.

Il bootleg, numero 39 della Uber Series è di qualità ottima. Come al solito ho messo il link ad un paio di canzoni.

Dancing In The Dark è stata suonata due volte per realizzare il video ufficiale della canzone.

Please remember to rate the bootleg!


This is the opening night of the Born in the USA Tour. The band sounds great, but their sound will change greatly over the tour. Early on in the tour, the drums sounded more natural and Bruce had no routine to copy.
In my opinion, this is the most enjoyable and novel show from the 1st 4-5 weeks of the tour.
The Dancing in the Dark video is filmed this night and is played 2 times for the cameras. No Surrender makes its full band debut and will be played only 1 other time this way on the tour.
This recording has been carefully remastered from uncirculated cassettes that I have been sitting on for a long time. The recording had some songs which were cut (Glory Days, Bobby Jean, and The Detroit Medley). Fortunately, the cut songs are replaced and heard in their entirety on this release thanks to Rockcat who supplied me with complete copies of the aforementioned cut songs from his master cassettes (altenate source).

Thanks also to Tattoo Dad for starting his UBER Project.

Enjoy this release. Roll down your windows and play it loud.
